We’re very excited to share with you how BrightHaven’s work has been helping even more animals!
BrightHaven President and Founder Gail Pope recently recorded a presentation called “Understanding the Animal Dying Experience” for the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care (IAAHPC), the premier industry organization.
We’re really proud to say that this module is now part of IAAHPC’s online veterinary certification program, which significantly boosts BrightHaven’s standing as a well-respected animal hospice education center!
Secondly, Gail has been receiving a lot of positive feedback about how our work has considerably improved the lives of animals and their caregivers, which makes us realize that it is so very important is for BrightHaven to grow our resources and expand our reach:
I appreciate so much what you are doing for animal hospice. So many people don’t even know it’s a possibility or they equate it with suffering. Again, thank you for all you do.~Alice R.
Thank you so much for the kind, compassionate, wise guidance you offered us yesterday. It was very helpful to talk to you. Just knowing you make yourself available during challenging times is a great comfort. What a lovely service for guardians and their beloved animals as end of life draws near. ~Coralie M.

BrightHaven’s hospice work was Blanca Walker’s inspiration for this dazzling design. While tending to hospice patient Nicki the horse several years ago in the sanctuary pasture, Blanca recalls looking up at the stars twinkling in the nighttime sky. They lovingly reminded her of the many BrightHaven animal residents who had already departed.”
Thank you for your generous support!!! We couldn’t do our important work of helping animals and those who love them without you!!!
